Just to be clear I do not condone smoking. However, I don’t think that the problem lies in smoking in it of itself. Teenagers will always look to be I will say cool or rebellious. If it’s not smoking then it’s girls if its not girls then it will be something else. It’s always easier to say that someone shouldn’t do this or that, but there are so few “acceptable” outlets where they can get away. I say acceptable because it can actually be OK but just might be frowned upon in some areas.
I agree with you SJSinNYC. Met my wife that way. Happily married with two kids.
I guess it depends what they are smoking.
